Belconnen waste recycling facility—fire(Question No 1749)
Mr Coe asked the Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, upon notice, on 25 August 2011:
(1) In relation to the fire at the former Building Waste Recycling facility in Belconnen (a) what material, and what quantity of each type of material, was destroyed as a result of the fire and (b) what is the estimated cost of processing or recycling the material.
Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:
(1) The fire on Saturday 20 August 2011 occurred at the Parkwood Road Recycling Estate on the site rented to a company called ‘Nowaste Wood Busters Pty Ltd’, not at the former Building Waste Recycling Facility. The information sought is not available as Nowaste Wood Busters Pty Ltd is a private company and the tenancy agreement does not require the tenant to provide details of material type or processing costs.

(2) Has the government had any discussions with commercial interests affected by the Giralang DA decision, such as the expected tenant in Giralang, and the supermarkets in neighbouring suburbs.
(3) How does the Giralang DA decision advance the firmer Chief Minister’s and the late John Martin’s reported intention to reduce the duopoly of supermarkets.
(4) Can you explain how gross floor area (GFA) is calculated for supermarkets, in particular, how are storage and loading areas dealt with.
(5) Why is the definition of GFA different for supermarkets and bulky goods retailing.
(6) Given that the application of the Supermarket Competition Policy to land use policy is relying on the Commercial Codes review, what is the review timeline.
